Fiagon partners with joimax® to combine surgical navigation and minimal invasive endoscopic spinal surgery
DWG German Spine Meeting, Frankfurt – The German Fiagon AG, Henningsdorf/Berlin, a medical technology company that develops and manufactures innovative surgical navigation systems including flexible instruments and the German company joimax®GmbH, Karlsruhe, developer and manufacturer of technologies and training methods for minimally invasive endoscopic spinal surgery, announced their partnership today.
Fiagon develops and manufactures innovative surgical navigation systems using the latest generation of proprietary “FlexSensor” electromagnetic based navigation technology. Together, the joimax® and Fiagon technologies named the joimax® Intracs® system (Intraoperative navigation, tracking and control system) powered by Fiagon will provide physicians greater confidence in instrument placement during spinal procedures. The navigation system is ready-to-run within a few minutes, smart, safe and very precise. In the last several years Fiagon, along with world-renowned physicians, has changed the standard in spine navigation with its electromagnetic based navigation technology. This unique technology has already been used in oral and maxillofacial surgery, neurosurgery and spine surgery.
joimax® is the leading developer and provider of complete systems for minimally invasive endoscopic spinal surgery. With TESSYS® (transforaminal), iLESSYS® (interlaminar), CESSYS®(cervical), intENTS® (nucleotherapy), Multiuse RT (e.g. for rhizotomy) and now also the endoscopic assisted fusion program EndoLIF® and Percusys® are proven endoscopic and endoscopic assisted systems that together cover a huge variety of indications. Whether herniated disc, stenosis, pain therapy or spinal stabilization treatment – surgeons operate through small incisions under local or full anaesthetic via tissue and muscle sparing corridors through natural openings into the spinal canal (e.g. intervertebral foramen, the “Kambin triangle”).
„With the joimax® Intracs® system, powered by Fiagon, joimax® is able to offer its new technologies to the broad spine community. “In the future, we will be able to treat most patients with different endoscopic systems also because of the electromagnetic navigation technology developed with Fiagon,” comments Wolfgang Ries, CEO and founder of joimax®.
“Our system has been designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind. The result is a system that is tailor-made for the physician while providing the best possible accuracy, precision and confidence. The combination of joimax® and Fiagon technology is a win-win for physicians and patients,” said Dr. Timo Kruger, CEO at Fiagon.
